Yes, I guess you could say I am a loner, but I feel more lonely in a crowed room with boring people than I feel on my own.
When people rely on surface appearances and false racial stereotypes, rather than in-depth knowledge of others at the level of the heart, mind and spirit, their ability to assess and understand people accurately is compromised.
James A. Forbes
A good job is more than just a paycheck. A good job fosters independence and discipline, and contributes to the health of the community. A good job is a means to provide for the health and welfare of your family, to own a home, and save for retirement.
James H. Douglas, Jr.
We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.
I was born on the other side of the tracks, in public housing in Brooklyn, New York. My dad never made more than $20,000 a year, and I grew up in a family that lost health insurance. So I was scarred at a young age with understanding what it was like to watch my parents lose access to the American dream.
We live in a disposable society. It's easier to throw things out than to fix them. We even give it a name - we call it recycling.
Life should be great rather than long.
B. R. Ambedkar
Even as kids reach adolescence, they need more than ever for us to watch over them. Adolescence is not about letting go. It's about hanging on during a very bumpy ride.
Being effective at social media, whether for business or personal use, means capturing people who have short attention spans. They're only a click away from a picture of a funny cat, so you have to make your thing more compelling than that cat. And that can be a high bar.
Diamonds are nothing more than chunks of coal that stuck to their jobs.
Smart phones and social media expand our universe. We can connect with others or collect information easier and faster than ever.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Ludwig van Beethoven
No one should be ashamed to admit they are wrong, which is but saying, in other words, that they are wiser today than they were yesterday.
The glory is being happy. The glory is not winning here or winning there. The glory is enjoying practicing, enjoy every day, enjoying to work hard, trying to be a better player than before.
No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now.
Richard M. Nixon
America's veterans embody the ideals upon which America was founded more than 229 years ago.
The emotional brain responds to an event more quickly than the thinking brain.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
George Bernard Shaw
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
Henry David Thoreau
Good words cool more than cold water.
Nobody wants to get locked up, although 'locked up' is a matter of perspective. There can be people who are out who are in prison mentally and emotionally and worse off than those who are behind bars.
I think every single imperfection adds to your beauty. I'd rather be imperfect than perfect.
I've been around a long time, and when I was at the top of the hill, I was very ahead of my time! Evidence of that is that my music is still current today - you know, rappers sample it all the time. So, rather than compromise my artistic integrity, I concentrated on movies.
Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
